GT2 (8509) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Tap at DuClaw Arundel Mills. Pours a low haze orange with a dense buttermilk head. Great retention. Dusty, cheesy nose with orange candies. Taste is dusty, nutty, orange syrup, loads of cheesecloth. Palate is silkier, not too papery. Doesn't seem fresh. Lacing is massive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dorwart (2378) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Thin offwhite head of fine bubbles. Hoppy aroma with a bit of wine. Very strange. Also some roasted grains and dried orange peel. Color is a dark copper. Flavor is rather bitter with some tea leaves, resinous pine, bitter salad greens (dandelion) and some straw. Bit harsh the flavor. Very dry and astringent which lingers through the finish. Am ok but rather forward APA.

pineypower (2523) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Pours out a decent amber/copper color with not much of an off white head. Aroma is of bready malts, light toffee/ caramel sweetness, some citrus and light floral hops. Taste definitely leans towards more of the English style, cracker malts, cereal, some citrusy/floral hops, some lingering bitterness among the sweetness.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4971) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a red-orange-caramel color with a small creamy orange-tan head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was vegetal, sweetish, sour caramel and faint dark fruits. The flavor was tangy, sweet and vegetal with notes of sour caramel and faint dark fruits. Medium finish. Medium body. Meh.

rocbyter (1904) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Sweet hop and malt aroma. Hazy orange color with a small white head. Sweet and lightly bitter beginning that fades in the finish. Palate gets light in the end.

EithCubes (5006) - New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2014
Bottle. Nose of strong caramel and lighter resin, citrus and lightly tropical fruits, dough. Pours a nice in-between amber, supports a rocky beige head. Taste medium-strong bitterness with only slight sweetness, woody with caramel and lighter citrus. Hops here are earthier, slightly spicier. Lightly oily medium body more like thick alcohol in the middle with watery edges, there’s just no connecting malt. Cleansing and soap-stripping, mildly refreshing, clean.

Crisp, citrus zest, light malt, and a good deal of hops. Dry and slightly bitter hoppy finish. A nice APA.

True to it’s description, very nice blend of fresh hops. Very clear, caramel undertones, no off flavors, consistent. Looking forward to finding it on tap when I’m in the Balt area.

radio_nowhere (876) - Maryland, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle into pint glass, cloudy amber’ish-golden color with white head. Aroma of citrus/fruity hops and caramel malt. Taste wasn’t as hoppy as aroma led on, well balanced adding notes of breadiness, piney/floral hops and some graininess. Medium body, low carbonation, crisp with bitter finish. Taste APA.

snoworsummer (2188) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Draft at Arundel Mills. Pours hazy copper with a thin off white head and minimal lacing. Tastes like creamy orange citrus, pine, hoppy and musky. Low/medium body and carbonation. Smells like resin, leather, earthy.
